For Sale: 1955 Ford Thunderbird in O'Fallon, Illinois

Vehicle Description

Gateway Classic Cars of Orlando is proud to present this beautiful 1955 Ford Thunderbird. This Ford T-Bird for sale was Henry Ford's response to the Chevrolet Corvette, and was revealed at the Detroit Auto Show on February 20, 1954. No one could have predicted the success the Thunderbird would have. The Thunderbird's first year of production literally outsold the Corvette more than 23 to 1. Though it was sleek and sporty, the Thunderbird was not considered a sports car to Ford, but a "personal luxury vehicle." This Goldenrod Yellow beauty is a fine example of that first year, a great representation of the epic Thunderbird line. With a short and stout body, lovely curves, and a removable hard top, it is a real looker. With a hard top ready to hook-up, it is ready for whatever weather you throw at it. This Thunderbird for sale is powered by a legendary 292 cubic inch Y-Block V8, which churns out an impressive 198 horsepower. These motors were known for reliability, impressive torque, and unique sound. It is backed by a healthy 3-speed Ford-o-matic automatic transmission, which makes it an easy driver and a nice cruiser for anyone and everyone. With chrome wire wheels wrapped in wide whitewall radial tires, this T-Bird has just as much class as it does sass. You can truly understand why Ford motor company tried to emphasize the luxury aspect of the 1955 T-Bird, by peeking in the car, then taking a seat. This 1955 Ford Thunderbird for sale has a list of options, which include: hard removable top, seat belts, classy vinyl interior, and luxurious wide whitewall Bias Ply tires. This fun driving 1955 Thunderbird convertible for sale is ready to head on down to the local cruise-in, drive-in movie, and show.
